10 Cybersecurity Stats Your Dental Practice Should Know

The digital age has made it easier than ever to keep track of patient records, manage appointments, and communicate with clients. However, this increased reliance on technology also means that the threat of a cyber-attack is more real than ever before.  

From ransomware attacks to data breaches, dental practices need to be aware of the potential dangers lurking in cyberspace so they can take steps to protect their sensitive information and stay compliant with HIPAA regulations.

Benefits of Unlimited IT Support for Dental Practices

Technology is a critical asset for running a successful dental practice and staying competitive in the industry. But with technology come inevitable problems and IT challenges that can derail your operations – unless you have a robust support system in place.

Outsourcing IT + Billing Services with Dental Experts is a Great Superpower Strategy

When IT and billing systems are maintained at peak performance on a consistent basis, they create a well-built infrastructure that powers every aspect of a dental practice and enables the highest quality patient care to be delivered. Outsourcing these “non-dental” aspects of the practice may be the next step in your growth and profitability strategies.

Break Fix Vs. Managed Services: Which is Best for Your Dental Practice?

It is no secret that running a dental practice is not an easy feat. Besides patient care, there are countless administrative tasks to handle and technological considerations to keep in mind. One of the most important decisions you will make is how you choose to manage your IT network—will you go with a break fix model or switch over to managed services?  

It is an important decision that needs careful consideration as it affects not only your risk management and network security, but also the efficiency of operations within your practice.

Defending Your Dental Practice Against Phishing Scams

With the growth of emerging technologies, such as AI, cybercrime is becoming increasingly sophisticated. These tools are helping hackers become even more undetectable when conducting malicious phishing scams - like email spoofing. As a dental professional, it is of utmost importance for you to understand the basics of recognizing and avoiding these pitfalls - the last thing you would want is for today's patients to be affected by yesterday's mistakes.

Protecting Your Technology from Unexpected Power Outages

There is nothing more frustrating than having important equipment in a dental practice go down due to a power outage.
